Along the Roman trade route on Lake Zürich and in the Rhine Valley, Roman settlements sprung up. In the year 300 A.D. wine was grown on many of the south facing hillsides.
The Canton of Vaud is increasingly becoming a wine-growing region whose wine meets the highest international standards. This landscape is waiting to be discovered and enjoyed.
